Do You Think You are Suffering from Brain Tumor? 10 Signs You Must Take Seriously

Do You Think You are Suffering from Brain Tumor? 10 Signs You Must Take Seriously

A Brain Tumour can be defined as an abnormal growth of the tissues in the brain, which can disrupt the proper brain functions. Generally, the cells in the human body die and are replaced by new cells, while in the case of a tumour, the old cells do not die and form an accumulation and continues to grow to form a mass as more and more cells are added to it.

Symptoms of Brain Tumour:

  1. Headache: Having headache on regular basis, without any history of having such frequent headaches in past, which becomes worse because of other pressure related activities, such as sneezing, coughing, exercising might be a possible symptom of brain tumour and issues related to such sudden and frequent headaches should be taken up with the doctor without any further delay.
  2. Seizures: Seizures (fits) are amongst the most common symptoms of brain tumour, which might be limited to a particular body part or the whole body. Seizures might even continue after the treatment of brain tumour because of the left scar tissues in the brain.
  3. Numbness in arms/legs: Numbness in any body part, especially arms and legs should also be get evaluated timely, so that, if the possible reason behind them is a brain tumour, then the same could be treated well on time.
  4. Balancing problems: Poor coordination and balancing problems also arise as the most prominent symptom for the brain tumour and hence such small changes must be evaluated and the person suffering should be taken to a doctor immediately to get treated without any delay.
  5. Memory problems: Lack of concentration, poor memory and short term memory loss are few of the possible symptoms that indicate the presence of tumour.
  6. Nausea or vomiting: Nausea or vomiting might be the symptoms of many other possible health issues, but a headache supported by nausea and/or vomiting is one of the many symptoms of a brain tumour and hence should not be ignored.
  7. Facial paralysis: The inability to keep the facial activities under control also indicates the presence of a possible brain tumour and the same should also be diagnosed as soon as one experiences it.
  8. Change in vision: A person suffering from brain tumour might also experience changes in the vision, dizziness, blurry vision, among other sight related issues.
  9. Change in speech: The inability to speak properly and changes in the speech of a person may also indicate a possible presence of a tumour.
  10. Hearing problems: Sudden occurrence of hearing problems and other hearing related disorders might have the brain tumour as a possible reason.

Diagnosing a brain tumour may include one or more of many tests, including CT scan, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Angiogram and biopsy. One should never ignore the symptoms of the brain tumour and should get himself/herself checked since the brain tumours might result into permanent damages to the brain; hence such issues should never be ignored. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.

Please understand that the gold standard and correct way of practicing medicine is to clinically examine first and based on clinical findings and possible diagnoses, suggest appropriate tests to either confirm or refute the possibilities in mind. Getting all kinds of tests done is a futile exercise. Certain basic blood tests may be done such as hemogram, rft, lft, rbs, electrolytes, tsh to get a general sense of direction. But otherwise, randomly ordering tests is not a good idea. Please get examined by a good doctor and then act on his guidance. Take care!

From what you have described, it is likely your father is suffering from a condition called REM behaviour disorder, a sleep disorder in which a person enacts out their dreams. Since it may be associated with underlying neurological conditions, he needs to be examined in detail by a neurologist and evaluated. He may require a sleep study also.

Mr. Lybrate-user, age by itself is not a contraindication for surgery. You should accept the risks of surgery, and meet a neurosurgeon who sub specializes in pediatric branch and take advice. There is no single hospital in india which specializes in children. You can go to reputed national institutions like aiims, delhi or nimhans, bangalore.

Most of software professionals don't know how to work on computer for long time without giving trouble to eyes. While working on computer number of blinking drastically goes down from around 24 per minute to around 8 per minute leading to severe dryness causing burning, eyestrain, blurring of vision & headache. One should try to have normal blinking while working on computer, should look away from screen after every 10 minute , should take rest for 10 minute after every 2 hours& should wear antiglare glass. Software professionals should use lubricating eye drops 4-5 times daily (Systane ultra)&genteal gel once at bed time.

I have facial paraylise for six years. I am 30years age. Someone guide me for this.

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Facial paralysis at your age is mostly due to bells palsy and you need to get it diagnosed correctly. Sometimes our facial nerve stops functioning due to unknow reason and one side of face muscles get weak. Usually the function returns in few weeks to couple months. During that time it is very important to keep these small muscles in face from loosing muscle mass (called atrophy) I can help with an exercise plan to strengthen the face muscles and improve closing of eyes, closing of mouth, smile etc. Keep a positive attitude and keep working at these exs. Check with a neurologist if any meds can help too. Good luck.

If your headache is associated with nausea or vomiting and it occurs only on one side of head it may be migraine. In case of migraine you will also identify some triggers like light, sound, smell, lack of sleep etc. causing an attack. Try to identify what causes your headache and avoid that trigger. Also you will be having phonophobia or photophobia in migraine and your headache will worsenbwith physical activity. If your head ache has above mentioned character it is migraine. Take simple analgesics when you have headache.

I'm a 24 year old who is suffering from AVM in brain.Please let me know what could be the cause of it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The cause of brain avm is unknown, but researchers believe most brain avms emerge during fetal development. Anyone can be born with a brain avm, but these factors may be a risk: being male. Avms are more common in males. Having a family history. Cases of avms in families have been reported, but it's unclear if there's a certain genetic factor or if the cases are only coincidental. It's also possible to inherit other medical conditions that predispose you to having vascular malformations such as avms.
